Description:  Yin Yoga is a practice which places healthy, gentle, regenerative stress on the connective tissue of the body - tendons, ligaments, fascia.  Postures are practiced carefully and mindfully and may be held for longer periods of time to allow gradual and safe restoration of the connective tissues.  This calm, beneficial practice is a great counter training to more active styles of yoga, and helps to reduce aches, pains and overall physical and mental tension and stress.  The lower body is mainly targeted using passing but possibly challenging floor postures.  
Please note this is not a Restorative Training
This module is continuing education.  In order to teach Yin Yoga you must also be a certified yoga teacher
